LEADERS Pak Rangers march on with the only undefeated record in the Fell Promotions Kirklees Sunday League.
Their latest victims were Marsh FC, who they beat 7-1 at Reinwood.
Ernest Befoa did most of the damage with a hat trick, while Jamie Jobarteh, Wayne Shooter, Liam Riley and Paul Pike also registered.
Shooter opened the scoring early on before Befoa got his first, chipping the keeper after a Lance Hanson free-kick hadn’t been held.
Jamie Jobarteh was the most alert to increase the lead and, with midfield dynamo Khallil Shafique making sure Marsh did not retain any possession with his constant hard work, Befoa made it 4-0 by half time with a volley.
The second half just got worse for Marsh with a well-placed shot from Paul Pike making it five before left winger Riley scored the goal of the match.
Befoa completed his hat trick before Marsh got a consolation goal.
Rose & Crown stay second after a 3-1 win over third-place Huddersfield Irish, to open up the gap between the sides to five points.
Lee Wharam, Dean Wharam and Dave Brennan grabbed Crown’s goals, in response to Irish’s opening score.
Black Bull jumped up two places following a resounding 7-1 win over injury-hit Helion Albion.
Haigh (2), Dignan (2), Sykes (D), Gill and Walters were on target for Bull, with Andy Salm for Albion.
In Division II, leaders Inter Athletic gained another win – a tight 1-0 success over Club Kirkheaton, with Conheeny notching the winner.
Meltham Victoria Park were also victorious again – thumping Woolpack 10-2.
Scorers for Meltham were Hamby, Yarker, Tindal, Khalaf, Solano, Margaglioni and Howe, while Lee bagged a hat trick.
Allette (penalty) and Smith notched for Woolpack, who reported: “Everything that could go wrong went wrong!”
They had only nine players at 10.20 butr managed to scramble together a team and subs and even took the lead with a Courtney Allette spot-kick after Jordan Ramsden-Reilly was brought down.
Sloppy defending meant Meltham quickly had a 3-1 lead, however, and this was extended with a penalty before Dan Ginty andRamsden-Reilly missed decent chances.
Woolpack’s new signing Lloyd James was a threat whenever the ball went his way, but Meltham netted two more goals to make it 6-1 at half time.
Woolpack got a consolation through Andy Smith’s penalty but Meltham took their tally into double figures with only moments left.
Woolpack are not looking at all healthy at the bottom. The only consolation is they have now played one of the title favourites twice and, after Wellington A this week they have another top side out of the way.
Fourth-placed Wellington A drew 4-4 with Wellington B to join Field Head in the table.
Eddie Hamlet got a hat trick for the A side to add to Ray Clayton’s goal, while Dave Khangura, John Duggan (2) and Aaron Afsar were on target for the B side.
A’s Gareth Bradley saw a late penalty saved to ensure a share of the spoils.
Third-place Dalton beat Field Head 5-3 with the help of a Jamie Hartley hat trick and goals from Andy Anderson and Ryan Haigh.
It was Dalton’s fifth win from six games Luke Gilman and Dan Wright recorded for Head.
Escorpians are finally off the bottom after their second win of the season.
They beat Barking Spider 2-1, with Gareis and Dyas scoring for Escorpians.
